Bisquick Waffle Recipe Ingredients
I wanted to make the best Bisquick waffle recipe while keeping the ingredients list and instructions short for busy families! You can easily double or triple the recipe to make more waffles. Be sure to see the recipe card for ingredient measurements.
- Bisquick: You can use store-bought bisquick to make waffles or use my homemade bisquick recipe.
- Milk: Whole milk adds moisture as well as some fat to these bisquick waffles.
- Egg: You only need one egg to make these waffles.
- Oil: We suggest melted butter for the oil because it adds additional flavor! You can also use vegetable oil or canola oil if you prefer.
- Sugar: The brown sugar adds sweetness and flavor and helps the waffles get crispy.
- Vanilla: A little vanilla extract adds flavor! You could also use coconut or almond extract.
How To Make Waffles with Bisquick
These waffles are so easy to make; there are only two steps! Mix up the batter and cook the waffles.
- Bisquick Waffle Batter: Put the bisquick, whole milk, egg, melted butter, brown sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Whisk the ingredients together until combined.
- Cook in Waffle Iron: Once your waffle iron is hot, spray it with cooking spray or brush it with oil. Then, pour the waffle batter into the center and close the lid. The amount of waffle batter you will need depends on your waffle iron. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, depending on your waffle iron, until it stops steaming.
- Note: My waffle iron uses 3/4 cup of batter for each waffle. I was able to make four waffles with one batch of batter.
The classic way to eat waffles is to top them with butter and syrup. But growing up in the midwest, we always ate waffles and pancakes with peanut butter and syrup. It wasn’t until I started traveling and found that restaurants didn’t offer peanut butter with waffles that is must be a midwest thing.
And, of course, waffles with bisquick are always delicious with fresh fruit on top. Sprinkle on a little powdered sugar or a dollop of whipped cream.
Besides the butter and syrup, peanut butter, and fresh fruit mentioned above, there are endless topping options for waffles! Here are a few more to try:
- bananas and peanut butter
- chocolate chips
- cinnamon and sugar
- chicken tenders

- Toaster: If your waffles are small enough, you can warm them in the toaster until hot.

I made these for my boys not telling them about the special changes to our regular Sunday waffles. They both loved them and said, “Mom, these waffles are really good.” It’s a keeper. Thanks!
